First of all, strength training (the best way to get more muscle) will help you get stronger, and that's self-evident.

Then, it will also help you reduce belly fat, lower the risk of falls, lower the risk of injury, and improve your heart rate, and thus blood sugar management. Last but not least, it enhances mobility and flexibility, and it not only strengthens your muscles but also your bones.
